101 jots – (lxxxi – xc)

To plunder, to lie, to show your arse
are three essentials for climbing high.

Aristophanes

(lxxxii)

These days so many drama queens play professional tennis
and almost all of them men.

(lxxxiii)

It’s the intention of every interviewer on TV
to deliver a lecture instead of asking a question.

(lxxxiv)

Dearest Pam,
Your left ham is exceeded in beauty only by your right
but i have to say scram Pam, you’re spam!

(lxxxv)

You have the right to bear arms.
It’s enshrined and won’t be changed.
Even if you wanted change, it’s too late;
there are millions of guns out there
and people willing to use them.

Will there be another mass execution?

(lxxxvi)

The English are at their silliest and most embarrassing
when talking about the Royal Family and commentating on sport.

(lxxxvii)

Of course you have the right to freedom of expression,
we encourage and support it;
unfortunately, we can’t offer you protection 24/7
so bear in mind you may have to die for your right.

(lxxxviii)

Golf is the perfect game for today,
you can actually gain weight while playing.

(lxxxix)

Big game hunting would be fun
if the big game had guns.

Shaw is right:
it’s not about having good manners or bad manners
but having the same manner for all human souls.

    • Yes, Dan
      i’m so fed up of these so-called interviewers, consummate amateurs,
      only interested in hearing themselves;

      i saw Amanpour the other day reading her notes while the interviewee was speaking and not paying the slightest attention to his answer – amateur!

      Thank you, Dan

      Best Always

  1. This is excellent, I smiled, I nodded in agreement, I dissolved in a spasm of giggles over #36! Great job.
    Love,
    Holly

  2. “Shaw is right: it’s not about having good manners or bad manners but having the same manner for all human souls.” Perfect message for starting the week Uncle John ~ hope you have a lovely one. Sending TX big hugs your way ~

  3. “To plunder, to lie, to show your arse are three essentials for climbing high.” Yes of course, it is self evident as the results of such behavior which result in vile personality types, politicians, media members, lawyers and automobile and snake oil salesmen. Loved these John my dear friend. Thank you. Jon Michael

  4. Another little collection of gems. From scaling the corporate ladder, to self-serving media presenters to the perfection of Shaw’s observation – so well-chosen.
